Is anyone else having problems with their trackpad gestures? i.e. some gestures not working?

Up until about a half hour ago, I did not know that the air could "tap" by just tapping the trackpad, or right click by using 2 fingers.

I tried using the "tap" motion when I first got it, and when it didn't work I just assumed it was only a MacPro feature (as the "tap" feature works fine on it).

Anyway, so I was reading some tutorials on apple.com and came upon this : http://www.apple.com/macbookair/features.html

so now I find out that the air SHOULD do this but doesn't on mine. I also can't click and drag or right click by way of the trackpad.

Any thoughts or ideas of why mine doesn't do this? Or is anybody else have similar issues?

Have you played with the settings in the System Preferences?

Thats it. Thanks a lot.

I apologize if this was already a thread, and I just duplicated it. I did a thread check and it said there wasn't a thread with this name. But then I see a thread that is basically the same as mine and was here first.
